Spending Less on Water

Did you know that each person in the UK uses about 150 litres of water every day? and that this average has been consistently rising since the 1930s. 

... Did you also know that despite all of our rain London is drier than Istanbul, and the South East of England has less water available per person than the Sudan or Syria... 

... And that about 1/3 of the water we use each day runs down the plug hole or toilet without being used!

(see www.waterwise.org.uk for these & other water awareness facts)
